| One of the finest movies I've seen in a long while.
A quiet movie that makes you appreciate humanity. The characters are made very real, and you feel for their situation. It had me reflecting much on my own life and the people in it, where I was going, and such. Not sure how to describe how or why it moved me, but I suspect it was the combination of a) slow pacing, allowing you time to notice things in the lives portrayed, to draw your own conclusions, expectations, to identify with numerous little things that happen. b) a beautiful musical score c) fine acting d) fine cinematography e) numerous story threads, presented in a non-judgmental way, such as the novices struggling with the choice of nun-hood; the laundry-owner's aloof life; and the mother-daughter relationships. f) adequate suspense, in that you wanted to know how things would resolve Anyhow, am just very grateful for such movies being made.
